    New 2021 TE top box

    I just purchased a new 2020-2021 BMW top box from eBay, to save £. I can't get it to fit? Could this be for an older model? It says K69 on it? But it won't fit on my TE? I hear some people talking about mods or changing the mount plate? Any info would be greatly received.

    A pre 2020 top box will not fit on a 2020+ rack, the new rack is just that little bit too big. Dont think that you can buy a different rack to fit either

    Thanks the box fitted.
    I did not understand the lock barrel had to be fitted and used to open the mechanism first, for it to fit all good now. I had no instructions with the kit.
